Comments

This former Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Mena Creek property is now privately owned. No other details are known about the former church.

As Paronella Park founded by Jose Paronella, who settled at Mena Creek in 1914, and opened the still existing Paronella Park in 1928, the church may have some Spanish links as Jose immigrated from Spain.

More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photograph uploaded 10/6/2018.
